I bought this so I can take heaps of photos and videos in 2D and 3D.
I was waiting for the Nikon Coolpix P340 but went into the store and asked about other options. My criteria included wi-fi, RAW and manual mode. For a little extra cost and a heavier camera I have the Canon PowerShot G16 which I am enjoying. I'd happily recommend this camera to anyone wanting a compact with RAW. the wi-fi works well and I like that with my iPhone I can add geotag data to the metadata of the RAW image. I just have to remember to have the location tracking on when I'm capturing images.
Short battery life. Very hard to set up. Not for professional use
This Camera is awesome, I got some really great photo's the first time I used it. I was amazed at how simple this camera was to use for the first time. I would definitely recommend this Camera for a Beginning photographer
I bought this camera and accessories on advise from a travel adviser. Not having anyone local to help me (I live in country WA Geraldton) I am having great difficulty following the instructions in the online tutorials. I can take a photo and use the magnifying things but so far all the technical things elude me. Wish there was a book on Canon SX50HS for Dummies. Hopefully I will be able to operate the thing before we take off on our European holiday 19th June.
This is the perfect camera for the serious photographer who has limited finance. As such it is a cheaper alternative to the 5D Mark III and gives comparable results. It is easy use and a great improvement on my former camera, the 50D. So far I have yet to find any down side to the 6D and recommend it to for professional as well as amateur use.
Great service in store at Highpoint, answering all my questions and helping me to choose the camera that would suit me. It is easy to use and online manual is extremely helpful. Love the zoom and clarity of shots. Thanks a million Ted's. xx
The new 14-42mm power zoom is so compact it makes this camera feel more like a compact than an interchangeable lens camera.The image stabiliser is very effective especially in low light.The built in flash is also a great feature. The battery life is also excellent 5 days in Japan and no recharge necessary.this camera is the perfect travel companion.
Ideal for the photographer who wants SLR features at a low price, with a great zoom.
Obviously picture quality not as good as a full frame SLR, but is better than a compact compact, and the viewfinder very useful in very sunny situations.
Great features, which can take some mastering, but are easy to use for a photographer who has used a full SLR before.
I absolutely love this camera! As a novice, I am needing lots of practice, but already enjoying the superior quality of photos and ease of use. Look forward to fully utilising all the functionalities, highly recommend for a beginner and great for someone that doesn't want to lug around a heavy SLR!!
This is the 'general purpose' lens packaged with the Sony NEX cameras. A relatively small and compact design, this lens offers excellent mobility (in style with the NEX series) and is fairly simple to operate. The inclusion of OSS is a big plus, especially on a lens so compact. The image quality is just about average from 35mm to 50mm, but can on occasions produce some acceptable results a few stops down. Its performance on 16mm and the lower focal lengths however is somewhat insufficient. Distortion and vignetting is Very noticeable if left uncorrected.
Not for any serious shots, but makes an ok point-and-click travelling/scouting lens. Its standalone price however, does not justify its performance.
I researched many DSLR cameras as I looked to buy my first. Once you decide on a Nikon (vs canon) then for value for money I couldn't go past the D5200. Flip screen is excellent, good quality images, large range of lenses, solid build yet compact and the fun is in learning all the features. I love the results, the camera and opportunities it provides. My tip is do your research, ask questions and once you pick your budget stick to it...with lenses and accessories you can go over very easily.
Good images considering it isn't an Slr. Perfect for hiking and birding though with its size and zoom. Will need to carry battery supply though. Great features like rapid fire multi pictures and stitching assistance.
I bought my D5300 as an extra camera to my D90. I mainly do food for which my D90 is essentially permanently mounted now at home. The lightness of the D5300 allows to move about and capture images elsewhere. I did have the GPS-01 adaptor for the D90 which wasn't that good and I used Wi-Fi capable SD cards in it. The D5300 has a much better GPS capability and the Wi-Fi function is fantastic. Along with the easy to use Nikon app for my iPhone and iPad I can transfer JPG and NEF, edit and post to social media very quickly. I'd happily recommend the D5300 from Ted's Camera Store.
The only thing I don't really like is the flip out screen. Just have a screen, it doesn't really have to move. I'm always scared I'm going to break it.
My first camera! absolutely fantastic. Takes great photos, easy to use. Don't waste your money on the cheaper 'beginner' d3200. You gain a higher quality photos, lose the built in guide but it is replaced with extra photo effects which are fantastic. Everything you need to learn is online anyway! battery life is a little low but extras don't cost much anyway.
For what I need this camera is perfect as is the quality. I love it!
My partner is a beginner at digital photography and is finding it easy to use because of its clear eye view and so is willing to have a go with it. I find it great when a smaller, lighter camera is needed. Being able to adjust the setting to personalise the photo makes it more than a simple compact camera.
Just took this camera for a tour of Europe, during the winter and this camera performed admirably under the low light conditions. It had a familiar manual feel by being able to easily change metering styles. The Full HD video was very good, though sometimes hard to manage focusing. But overall the lens quality and even noise at high ISO was well within acceptable usage. Excellent for travelling and low light conditions with great image stabilisation.
Love the camera but still a lot learn yet
This lens is surprisingly fast and sharp for the price it is at. It gives good image quality but the auto focas is a little bit noisy.
